Some thoughtful individual was so motivated by it that he/she exerted the energy to peruse my site for a contact form, fill it out, and send me the following constructive criticism:
Aww... shucks. I have a Secret Admirer.
Bit of trivia: this is my first ever "hate email," and I'm honored.
Jokes aside, is this indicative of the typical Obama-supporter? My Secret Admirer notwithstanding, I've received nothing but positive feedback about that post so far.
Why is the only dissenting point of view expressed in such a vitriolic manner? Why can my Secret Admirer say nothing of substance? Why must he/she throw around 3rd-grade playground insults?
I backed up my argument with sources (41 news links and 6 videos). My Secret Admirer didn't even have an argument. Is there nothing that can be said to explain the absolutely abysmal record of their beloved candidate? I really want to know.
If anyone has anything to add to what I've said, I always welcome a discussion, whether you agree with me or not.
So, Secret Admirer, if you're out there, reading this, please come talk to me. Show me how I'm stupid rather than just telling me I am. I don't want to feel bad anymore. Show me the way.
Since the old alert was an actual modal window, and this new one is simply mimicking it from inside the main document, there are a few differences in behavior that are worth noting.
The new alert will not raise a window event like the old alert did. If your window is not in focus, the user will have no idea anything has happened.
Because the new alert is non-blocking, you can have multiple alerts open at the same time. In the case of multiple alerts, the user will see them in reverse chronological order, which can be confusing.
